This was a wonderful program that achieved everything promised and then some. The instructors were terrific, knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and understanding. Further, using their intimate knowledge of the Park and its wildlife, we achieved fantastic photo opportunities. We even managed some great photos! Getting to know the members of our group was the icing on the cake. They were delightful companions!

Really enjoyed this trip. The trip leader Meg gave a clear presentation on photography and the use of a digital camera. I learned a lot from this including functions of the camera that I did not know about. Then for the rest of the trip, Meg and Wendy took us out and about Yellowstone to practice. They were very informed and very helpful. They knew ware in the Park to take us and they kept in touch with other contacts to know where to photograph the wildlife. And what wildlife. We saw Bison, nursing Bison, fighting Bison and herds of Bison, everywhere Bison. And Elk, big horned sheep, mountain goats, Grisly Bear with cub, Mule Deer, red fox, and a badger. Lots of wildlife among beautiful landscape. It was great!

Great, Awesome, Wonderful, there are not enough words to describe this trip. Meg Sommers and Wendy were so knowledgeable about Yellowstone that there were times I forgot we were there for photography. I came away with a much larger appreciation of the park and the animals. Visiting Yellowstone is a bucket list must and going with Meg and Wendy it became so much more. By the way the photography lessons and subjects were quite spectacular.

An outstanding program. Was amazed at how much wildlife we saw and photographed. Hope to repeat this program as it was fun and greatly contributed to my development as a photographer. Meg was outstanding in every way as an instructor. She really knows photography and Yellowstone and is able to communicate that knowledge to the participants. Hope to repeat this program in the future.

Great program. Yellowstone is amazing and the we got great views of both wildlife and thermal features. We got great photo ops of wolves, fox, coyote, elk, bison and a bear (in February!) Photo ops of waterfalls, cascades, geysers, pools, hot springs, and other thermal features were great. The photography instruction was very strong, and the leaders know that the key was to get us to the "Kodak moment" shots and delivered.

If you like nature, don't mind a bit of cold and want to take your photography to the next level, this is the program for you. Meg is an outstanding instructor, meeting each student at his/her ability level. And Yellowstone in winter will take your breath away.

The location was outstanding and the staff were terrific. If I had visited Yellowstone on my own, I would have missed seeing and experiencing so much. Meg was an outstanding guide, and the group was a mixture of people who were so very friendly and enjoyable to be around.

This program surpassed all my expectations. It pushed me to become a better photographer and observer of the natural world. I can't thank the organizers enough for contributing to my leaning, growth and enjoyment.

I consider myself an intermediate level photographer, so while I was a little more advanced than some, there were still others from whom I learned a lot of practical tips. The instructor, Meg Sommers, was adept at helping people of all abilities, and really helped me a lot in bettering my technique and my composition. I feel like my interactions with both the instructor and the other participants really enhanced my enjoyment of photography as well as my technique. Highly recommended!

Fantastic program. Advanced my photography skills, learned a lot about the park and its wildlife, and gain confidence in the digital darkroom. Well organized. Outstanding instruction. Plenty of time in the field. Overall one of the best programs I've attended. Can't wait to go back.
